* your relationship to the book's author or publisher, or any other
potential conflict of interest;

book (do not send a complete CV or a boilerplate description of your
skills; I am interested in what makes you the ideal reviewer for this
particular book);

Reviews for Discourse & Society should provide an overview of the
contents of the book, as well as a reasoned and well-argued evaluation
of its contribution to scholarship at the intersection of discourse
analysis and the social sciences. Simple chapter-by-chapter
descriptions are undesirable.

Your review should be returned within three months of your receipt of
the book, and will normally be published within twelve months of
acceptance of the manuscript.
